This has also frustrated me, and none of the solutions recommended is ideal.
What bothers me is that it looks great in 2.10 (no flats touch barlines),
but I now depend on features in 2.11. It happens with sharps but is
especially apparent in flats, which, in the most recent versions, nearly
touch the barline if they immediately follow one.

I'll submit a lilypond file if the issue is not reproducible, but it's
strange that 2.11 passes this test:

Other than this trivial problem, I'm really starting to like lilypond.
Thanks guys!
